TRASH ART

The objective is to focus people’s attention to the management and recycling of trash that is one of the most important issues of our age.

We are in a special situation. We are shaping our environment, we are responsible for biodiversity. Humankind’s impact on our planet is so decisive that we are playing key role in its future. Only 20-30% of trash is recycled in Hungary currently, more than half of it (58%) ends up in rubbish dumps. This proportion should be reversed as soon as possible by selecting and recycling more and more. In Hungary, we produce one kilo of trash per person every day. This is quite a frightening figure, however, it can be reduced easily.

Trash can be of value, we can save 30% of what we are putting in trash cans if the background recycling systems work properly. The necessary infrastructure is being developed. With the help of statues, information and brochures TRASH ART HUNGARY aims to raise awareness to values hidden in recyclable materials. We need to recognise and evaluate it, then recycle as much as we can on a high level. We would like to share and pass on this attitude to as many people as we can reach.

Our statues are ambassadors of the environment. Their message is that instead of waste and consumption euphoria, it is environmental awareness that provides long term solutions for homo sapiens sapiens (wise man).
